A Primer On Choosing Surface Decors For Kitchen

Deciding what surfaces to opt for your kitchen is easier said than done. That the core of furnishing our kitchens is predicated on utility with aesthetics, the real task is finding surface decor that achieves this ideal balance. Because—we don’t want our kitchen to look like a visual cacophony with elements crammed together but a coherent, put-together space that exudes warmth. 

After all, it’s the most important part of our homes and so it warrants research—which, good for you, we have done in order to make the process of selection a breeze. Whether you have stock cabinets or fully bespoke ones, knowing the following will come in handy—

#1: COLOR

Just because your kitchen is a strictly functional area of your home doesn’t mean it can’t have colors. If you want to add a fresh point of view or zest in your kitchen then what another way than some delightful hues. We imagine an energetic yet soothing color palette of Blue, Grey, and Light Grey from our exclusive curation of wood fiber panels from Valchromat. Shutters sited away from the cooking section can be clad in Valchormat fiber panels for a burst of fresh color. While the Blue will take the center stage, Grey and Light Grey will complement and contain the intensity of Blue to make it all look cohesive.

#2: TEXTURED

For those of you who are a little skeptical about introducing colors, there’s always texture to punch up visual interest in your kitchen. Whether you want to add depth or visual weight, a textured surface decor will anchor your kitchen while imparting a sense of intimacy to it. The kitchen island here which is clad in embossed veneer panel Chopped Wood from Holz in Form anchors the space and trains the spotlight on the prominent part of the kitchen.

GLOSSY

No doubt that glossy surface decors are the first choice for those looking to conjure up an unabashedly luxurious feel in their kitchen. But when something looks do precious, doesn’t that mean high maintenance and compromise on performance? Well, that isn’t the case with VetroTec acrylic high glass panels from Otto, Germany. Offering outstanding resistance to abrasion and chemicals, these high gloss panels are especially recommended for demanding practical environments like kitchen owing to their hard-wearing properties.

MATT FINISH

Without a doubt, matt finish surface decors are a popular choice among those who want to keep things fail-safe and effortlessly elegant. With moderate to little to no reflectiveness—matt finish surface decors are perfect to imbue a sense of refined practicality in kitchens. Decorative recyclable panels, RMD work unbelievably well in the kitchen—all thanks to their water-resistant and stain-free properties. Produced sustainably, these panels are super easy to install (an excellent option for those who take pride in a good DIY) and basically are no-fuss surface decors which won’t make you break a sweat every time you think about cleaning them!

METAL FINISH

The magnetism of metallic finishes is irresistible. They look effortlessly sumptuous and lend an air of exclusivity to kitchen settings. The soft luster of metal finish laminates beautifully complements transitional schemes where you need a mix of old-school glamour and contemporary pizzazz. Our collection of Metal Laminates in Delhi are best suited for kitchen backsplashes, cabinets, shelves, and kitchen islands.

MetalGoals: Presenting the 2019 Metal laminates Collection from Homapal

Retro. Industrial. Contemporary. These three words best describe Homapal’s 2019 Trend Collection that the brand just launched at the recently concluded World’s biggest furniture show- Interzum in May. Comprising a total of 34 elegant decors, the Trend Collection offers a wide array of ambiance setting visual effects.

Each decor is painstakingly designed to give a unique ‘hand-processed and used’ look. These designs can satiate a variety of aesthetic palette—from industrial to modern farmhouse, transitional to tastefully lived-in, contemporary to traditional to basically, everything in between. 

Let’s take a look at the micro-trends that Homapal brewed this year—

MOON

Moon is a grunge ode to the imperfections left behind a craftsman. The flawed surface gives off a warm, familiar vibe that comes with things that have been lived with and used for many years. The aesthetically appealing chipped canvas comes in shiny or muted Copper, Brass or the oxidized looking combination of Copper and Turquoise

DIAMOND ANTIQUE

Diamond Antique is a modern reinterpretation of the eternally classic diamond pattern. It focuses on the delectable ‘undone’ dichotomy that is occasioned as clear linearity is enriched with the progressive blending of the colors. A pleasing amalgam of light, color, and form—Diamond features two skilfully finished hues, Copper and Brass.  

SAPPHIRE

Sapphire looks like it was specifically designed to appeal to those with a strong penchant for a minimalism-inspired aesthetic. The fine lines coupled with the vibrantly shining light-to-dark gradations create a mesmerizing panoply of light and shadow. The Sapphire series comes in a range of bewitching colors such as Graphite, Champagne, Rosegold, Bronzetone, and the unique Oxygreen. 

NEW CRISP

Subtle yet sumptuous, New Surface is created to prettify interiors of all ilks. Covered with deliberate cracks, it comes in five exciting metallic colorways- Gold, Anthracite, Oxygreen, Rose. We especially got our eyes after Copper New Crisp Antique as it seductively highlights the veined structure with subtle transparency.
